Tour Information

This Luxembourg Self Guided Motorcycle Tour is less than 4½ hours ride from Calais. With its beautiful wooded hillsides dotted with small towns and villages, rivers that wind their way through undulating countryside and fantastic biking roads make this region an ideal destination for a leisurely break or your first motorcycling trip into Europe.

You start this tour with an early departure from Folkestone and relaxing ride from Calais into Belgium. For those with longer journeys to Folkestone alternative crossing can be arranged.

For the next four nights you’ll stay in the small historic town in the heart of Luxembourg with its medieval fortified hilltop castle and scenic whitewater river.

Your three star hotel is situated in the centre of the town overlooked by the castle and has all en-suite rooms, secure underground garage, indoor swimming pool, a lovely terrace with beautiful views, a restaurant and bar.

The hotel is also well located for short strolls around this fantastic small medieval city and convenient for visits to the local bars and restaurants. Also worth mentioning that the local restaurants are renowned for their wide range of local specialties including smoked ham, snails, trout, game… and of course it’s famous chocolate and fruit filled pastries.

Once you settle in there are several ride out options you may choose from. One of them is to ride our proposed day trip to the neighboring vine growing region of Mosel, which is only less then few hours away.

Another option is to take a ride to Ardennes in Belgium and visit the smallest town on earth Durbuy which is, according to some, also one of the prettiest. The old town dates mainly from the 17th century with its narrow and cobbled pedestrian streets winding between the ancient houses makes it very pleasant place to soak up the atmosphere and perhaps have a spot of lunch.

A separate day trip may include a ride across Luxemburg quite country side and visit another small medieval town in Ardennes. Dinanat is situated on the banks of river Meuse providing you with an excellent opportunity to take a relaxing stroll around the town and have a delicious lunch in one its many cafes and restaurants. The skyline of the town is dominated by a hundred meter cliff and its two main structures; the Cathedral of Notre Dame and the Citadel with fortress.

Whether you are planning a short relaxing break taking in idyllic countryside, riding superb biking roads, flavoring delicious cuisine, or preferring to visit some of the historical sights of the area… with Luxembourg you can’t go wrong!
